Double Deal Monday!


Society For Animals in Distress LogoI didn’t want to post this until I had something to show, but I actually was published again! This time, it was a true story for a no-kill animal shelter newsletter. The shelter, Society for Animals in Distress, is in Canada, but had posted in Absolute Write’s forums looking for help. I gladly responded to the call, having just adopted a new doggie myself.

Luckily, they really liked my story! Unfortunately for me, though, I was uber busy at the time and never got further than my first draft. I also missed the deadline, but decided to send what I had the next day anyway (unedited — gross!). The story was touching enough that they took it anyway, and here it is for your reading enjoyment!

Jan Newsletter 2010 V1.0.9

Dallas 2I have removed some of the newsletter per their instructions, but left their intro, header, and my story. Oh, and in case you are wondering what Dallas looks like, this is him 😉

Dallas 1

Sheal, my contact there, had also asked me to mention that their organization SAD, could really use your *ahem* TAX DEDUCTABLE *ahem* donations. They are in crunch time, and are in danger of closing their doors (and gassing tons of cute doggies).  In case you somehow missed one of the several other links, you can get to their site here.

In a sad turn of events, we had to get rid of Dallas 🙁 My wife became pregnant with twins (yeah!!!!!!!!), and the dogs were too much. Not only would they still jump at her sometimes (kicking her in the tummy, no bueno!), but the smell was making her throw up regularly. On top of that, their constant upkeep was too hard on her (those twins are really sucking the life out of her… literally!), so we found a GREAT home for Dallas and our other dog, Dakota. We know they will make their owners very happy!

Thanks again to Society for Animals in Distress for running my story!
